I found out tonight that I could export my old LiveJournal account to a PDF file. Since I haven't updated that journal in over a year (and before that it had been about that long), I decided to set it all to private now that I want to keep some of my private life...well, private.
The evil that is LJ won't let me set all entries to private unless I fork over a paid membership. For a journal I don't use. WTF?
So I exported that bitch and now have it saved to my computer. And the account is hereby deleted. Woot!
Here's the awesomesauce part: when I looked at the first entry in the journal, it's from when I was in Bahrain and noticing how judgy I'd gotten. Score! I think I might start posting some of those old LJ posts here (only with the Filter du Semi-Anonymous Snark on it) when I have nothing better to talk about. If nothing else, it'll be a nice way to keep some of that stuff alive without having it hanging out in the evil recesses of LJ-dom.
